Excellent animated feature.
1 May 2001 | by (Slagelse, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is definitely animator Hastrup´s best film. A compelling and funny story of orphan bird Oliver, who along with girlfriend Olivia and a couple of mice (Frederik and Ingolf of the Cirkeline cartoons) battles evil hawk Fagin. Despite the names, film has little to do with Dickens´ novel, but that doesn´t matter, because the film is great on its own terms. Tommy Kenter´s owl is unmistakably inspired by W.C. Fields, and as usual, Hastrup´s voice casting is excellent.
